Best Redneck Bar - 2008
Contrary to our image in the national mind's eye, the redneck seems to be something of an endangered species in inside-the-Beltway Houston. But they didn't get that memo at Robbie's Lounge. At this Spring Branch-area strip mall bar, a Confederate flag hangs in one window, while a sign nailed to one wall reads, "Sexual harassment is tolerated here. However, it will be graded." Best of all, behind the bar, plastic statuettes of Hank Jr. and Waylon Jennings stand guard over bottles of Jack and Budweiser taps. The South may not ever do it again in Houston, but it's still doing it every blessed night at Robbie's.
